Presentation Transcript
slide2

Suitable only for 15 years and over

  • No one younger than 15 may see a ‘15’ film in a cinema.
  • No one younger than 15 may rent or buy a ‘15’ rated video work.
slide3

No-one younger than 18 may see an ‘18’ film in a cinema.

  • No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy an ‘18’ rated video.
slide4

Discrimination

  • The work as a whole must not endorse discriminatory language or behaviour.
slide5

Sex education at ‘18’

  • Where sex material genuinely seeks to inform and educate in matters such as human sexuality, safer sex and health, explicit images of sexual activity may be permitted.
slide6

Drugs

  • Drug taking may be shown but the film as a whole must not promote or encourage drug misuse.
  • The misuse of easily accessible and highly dangerous substances (for example, aerosols or solvents) is unlikely to be acceptable.
slide7

Horror

  • Strong threat and menace are permitted unless sadistic or sexualised.
  • Imitable behaviour
  • Dangerous behaviour (for example, hanging, suicide and self-harming) should not dwell on detail which could be copied. Easily accessible weapons should not be glamorised.
slide8

Language

  • There may be frequent use of strong language (for example, ‘fuck’). The strongest terms (for example, ‘cunt’) may be acceptable if justified by the context. Aggressive or repeated use of the strongest language is unlikely to be acceptable.
  • Nudity
  • Nudity may be allowed in a sexual context but without strong detail. There are no constraints on nudity in a non-sexual or educational context.
slide9

Sex

  • Sexual activity may be portrayed without strong detail.
  • There may be strong verbal references to sexual behaviour, but the strongest references are unlikely to be acceptable unless justified by context. Works whose primary purpose is sexual arousal or stimulation are unlikely to be acceptable.
  • Theme
  • No theme is prohibited, provided the treatment is appropriate for 15 year olds
slide10

Violence

  • Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable. Strong sadistic or sexualised violence is also unlikely to be acceptable.
  • There may be detailed verbal references to sexual violence but any portrayal of sexual violence must be discreet and have a strong contextual justification.
slide11

Fairly self-explanatory

  • i.e. Graphic sex movies
key differences
Key Differences
  • The clear differences between 15/18 rated movies are the graphic sex materials contained in them, and to what level they expose such things.
